Washington’s Sentinel Network Workforce Survey-Your Participation is Critical!

Do you have enough health care workers with the skills you and your patients need?  How has COVID-19 impacted your ability to provide health care in your corner of the state?

Starting Friday, April 9, take 10 minutes to share at: www.wa.sentinelnetwork.org/join.

The Sentinel Network: Making a difference

Washington’s health care providers are able to quickly and regularly communicate their needs through the Sentinel Network’s simple, online questionnaire. Twice a year this information is collected and pushed out to key policymakers, educators, and other stakeholders.

Policymakers are paying attention

The Sentinel Network is funded by the Legislature, and it’s clear policy makers are paying attention to this tool. For example, information provided by you and your colleagues since the Sentinel Network launched in 2016 has helped healthcare training programs invest in promising workforce pathways. Sentinel Network information also helped the state craft regulatory changes to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

See what other Sentinels are saying at findings dashboard, policy briefs and COVID-19 findings pages.

Washington’s Sentinel Network is a collaboration of the state’s Workforce Board and the University of Washington’s Center for Health Workforce Studies and a program of Washington’s Health Workforce Council. Funding to initiate the Sentinel Network came from the Healthier Washington initiative, with ongoing support from Governor Inslee’s office and the Washington Legislature.
